Pet Transfers & Pick Up

The Pet Emergency Clinic is equipped and staffed to provide after hours small animal emergency care.  Pets hospitalized for treatment that are returning home or being transferred to their regular veterinarian must be picked up by their owners before 8:00 am the following morning (Except on weekends and holidays).

If further hospitalization is necessary, pets must be transferred by their owners to their regular veterinarian’s facilities.  Records of the pet’s hospitalization will be sent to the appropriate place so that the regular veterinarian will be able to view all treatments and diagnostics done in our facility.  Our doctors will contact your veterinarian regarding the transfer when appropriate.

Inland Empire Veterinary Imaging operates inside the same building as the Pet Emergency Clinic.  They are a veterinary diagnostic imaging practice that specializes in ultrasound, CT, digital radiology, and radiographic interpretation.

If your pet is transferred to Inland Empire Veterinary Imaging, there are a few things to expect.  A receptionist from Inland Empire will be calling to discuss the imaging being done, give a price quote of the procedure, along with answering any questions that you may have.  Further contact may be made if the doctor feels additional imaging is required.

If your pet is receiving an abdominal ultrasound the belly area will be shaved.  If your pet is receiving a thoracic or cardiac ultrasound, there will be portions of the chest that will be shaved.  While the imaging procedure is being performed, your pet may require sedation for various reasons, such as comfort.

Once the imaging procedure is complete the results of the procedure will be sent to your regular veterinarian since they will be responsible for continued care of your pet.  Your regular veterinarian should call you to discuss the results of the procedure.  You will be informed when the procedure is complete and when you are able to pick up your pet.

Payment is required in full at the time of services.  Please note that your Inland Empire Veterinary Imaging bill is separate from your Pet Emergency Clinic bill and both need to be paid in full during pick up.
